[laughter] maybe we can do it in stages. we will solve this problem instead in several steps. in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts which have taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades so that would add additional hundreds of billions of dolla

their stake in the energy business. energy was once a popular investment on wall street. in 2008, big banks were so involved in the market that banks powered an estimated 2 out of every 5 residential customers. however, lower prices and more regulation following the enron collapse are causing firms to take a step back from the business. recently, federal regulators banned jpmorgan chase from selling electricity for 6 months. it's part of an investigation that the bank manipulated energy prices in some parts of the u.s. the holiday parties are winding down on wall street. several financial firms in new york called off holiday events or scaled back. report say morgan stanely and credit suisse did not sponsor parties. citigroup, deutche bank, barclays and the investment banking unit of bank of america left it up to individual departments to pay out of their own accounts. back in the day, as in before the financial crisis, wall street firms rented out nightclubs and steakhouses in midtown for holiday celebrations. the u.s. government is calling in the national academy of sciences for yet anothe

for businesses through an extension of important tax provisions such as the r&d credit and also renewable energy incentives that must continue in this great country of ours and encourage business investments. but i want to emphasize this somewhat in contrast to what our chairman has said. this legislation breaks the iron barrier that for far too long has prevented additional tax revenues from the very wealthiest. it raises $620 billion in revenue by achieving the president's goal of asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay more while protecting 98% of families -- that's right, that's what it does, 97% -- i want to emphasize this contrary to propoganda coming from the other side. 97% of small businesses from any tax increase. and this needs to be emphasized especially in view, mr. chairman, of your comments. this package is vital for future deficit reduction efforts. setting the stage for a balanced approach from here on out by delaying sequestration through one-to-one revenue to spending cuts. yesterday, president obama said he is committed to deficit reduction, but he emphasized several tim

's proliferation-sensitive energy sector which even the united nations acknowledges is providing revenues for iran's nuclear weapons program. kelly: you know, to that end, congress has just approved an amendment to the national defense authorization act which, of course, would then toughen sanctions on iran in some key areas. what impact will that have on iran's nuclear program? >> well, you know, so far sanctions have had no impact. they haven't broken the nuclear will of khamenei, but there's no doubt the iranian regime is hurting. these sanctions are meant to massively intensify the economic pressure in the hope that peaceful economic pressure will change the regime's risk/reward calculus. again, no evidence that it has. we'll see with the next round of negotiations that are supposed to resume in the january. kelly: again, the military option does remain on the table, albeit it's not being discussed right now. >> well, it has to be on the table because the only way you break the nuclear will is if ha manny believes the united states will use military force. if he doesn't believe that, all the s
